Lighting Science Group's 1 Millionth U.S. LED Bulb at Monday December 13 to be a Revolutionary New Low Cost/High Output 60 Watt Replacement

Lighting Science Group, a leading American maker of LED lighting, will hold an event where the company will manufacture their 1 millionth U.S. LED bulb—a new omnidirectional, ultra-efficient LED bulb that replaces America's most used energy hog—the 60 watt incandesent bulb. Lighting Science Group's omidirectional A19 60 watt equivalent LED bulb will be 80% more efficient than the incandescent bulb that it replaces, have the highest lumen (light) output of any other LED bulb on the market, and be priced below competitive LED products. The 60 watt incandescent bulb is the most used bulb in America; over 425 million are sold in the U.S. every year—making up some 50% of the bulb sales market. Lighting Science Group's LED bulb will be a low cost, long-lasting and ultra-efficient replacement for those bulbs—saving Americans money and increasing energy independence.

For years, high-output and low-cost LED lighting products have been just out of reach from a cost basis, but Lighting Science Group has revolutionized the science of light in America to produce lighting products that deliver on the promise of LED technology. From the International Space Station to the Times Square Ball to other projects in major cities across the world and now in homes, the company's LED solutions are increasing energy independence and saving consumers, businesses and governments significant amounts of money. In fact, Lighting Science Group is the chosen partner of NASA to develop cutting-edge lighting technologies for use in space, and recently received the industry's first ENERGY STAR label for an LED light bulb.

Major lighting retailers like The Home Depot, lighting companies, retail chains, restaurants, cities like Salt Lake City, UT and Lewiston, ME, military installations such as Naval Base Ventura County, CA, and world renowned architects and builders have all chosen Lighting Science Group to be their lighting technology provider. Why? The company's products produce a better combination of more light at a lower price—with longer life and better lighting quality—than other LED products on the market.
